Vote Chris Allbritton “Media Person of the Year”

I Want Media and The Week magazine is holding an online poll to vote for “Media Person of the Year”. One of the candidates is my friend Chris Allbritton of Back To Iraq — the journalist who went to Iraq during the war for a totally independent reporting trip paid for solely by donations from his blog audience!

Drop by and vote for him; he singlehandedly created a new format of journalism in 2003. While you’re at it, consider donating to Chris’ next trip: This month he announced that he’s going to return to Iraq this spring to do more indie reporting on Iraq, one year later.
